Let’s taste a new local product “Veclaicenes kūkins”- brown sugar biscuit with juicy sour cream s, the bitter acidity of lingonberries, grown in Veclaicene, will bring you back to childhood.
Veclaicenes kūkins Veclaicene cake is a delicacy of Daina Vītuma from Aluksne, who is baked by family ladies for at least the fourth generation. In its softness, it includes the embrace of the surrounding nature and the temperament of the Malenians. Kūkins is a story about the friendship between Malenians and Estonians here, about the border posts surrounded by landscape values and about a place that is amazing in its naturalness. In order for everyone to be able to experience this special taste of Veclaicene, Daina shared the recipe with the local cafe owners, who also offer this delicacy in their menus.
Anyone looking for local flavors will be able to enjoy it before or after Veclaicene visiting. Enjoy!
